In addition to the technical programme, you will find current topics and background information on crop production and agricultural technology. From the DLG publication network as well as from exhibitors at AGRITECHNICA.
Autonomous field work is no longer a distant prospect with robots increasingly finding their way into practical applications. However, further development work is needed before they can be used on a broader scale and fundamental safety issues still need to be clarified - Agritechnica, 12-18 November, 2023
In agriculture, the paradigm shift toward digitalization is well underway. Many farms have recognized its benefits and are already using digital technologies. Smart farming solutions help farmers to run the farm more effectively, use resources more efficiently, simplify operations, customize crop production for the local conditions, and, ultimately, make the optimal decisions.
Electrical and hydrogen powertrains are just a few of the alternative drive systems finding their place in modern farming. One important reason for the increased interest in alternative drives and fuels is the push to significantly reduce greenhouse gases. To achieve the goals of the Paris climate agreement, CO2 emissions must be reduced quickly and drastically.
Systems and Components, the B2B marketplace will be offering developers and design engineers an information and discussion platform around the latest developments and alternative fuels. There visitors can see what an ‘ideal’ drivetrain for a hydrogen-powered excavator or tractor might look like.
Indoor farming has established itself as a visionary model in the transformation towards more sustainable agriculture. The modern and increasingly vertical greenhouses require a system that combines intelligent controls and sensors.
Professor Till Meinel is a professor for agricultural machinery technology and design engineering at the University of Applied Sciences in Cologne. In the interview, he talks about the potential of the B2B platform for the supplier industry in the context of AGRITECHNICA.
Dandelion, nettle, milk thistle or artichoke - the cultivation of aromatic and medicinal herbs is a niche. Not everyone can serve them, but for specialists they are lucrative.
Automatically recognizing weeds in row crops and controlling them as necessary on the basis of algorithms: what sounds like dreams of the future is already on the threshold of practice. The technology works. The decision-making aid promises significant savings for the future.
If the curtain really does come down on using glyphosate at the end of 2023, it does not mean either the end of the world or necessarily a forced return to ploughing. But it will make life more difficult.
Sowing plays a key role, particularly in maize. It is hardly possible to compensate for problems in germination and the development of young plants during the vegetation period.
